Relationship of speed with foot length leg length and stride length of state level sprinters
Author(s): Sukumar Das and Gopal Ch. Saha
Previous research has suggested that a degree of predictability exists in the relationship between self-selected running stride rates (SR) and stride lengths (SL) with measures of body size such as mass, height and limb lengths. The present study was undertaken to find the relationship of speed ability with foot length, leg length and stride length of state level sprinters. For this study 30 male state level sprinters, age range 18-24, of different athletics coaching Centre from west Midnapur and North 24pgs in West Bengal were selected purposively. The subjects were tested speed by 50mt. dash and physical measures of foot length, leg length and stride length were also recorded. The product moment correlation was computed to find out the zero order correlation of the independent variables on the dependent variables. The statistical analysis of data in selected Anthropometric measurements (foot length and leg length) and Physical fitness (stride length) were computed by applying product moment correlation statistics for each variable separately. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Statistical calculation of the gathered data showed that stride length has a negative significant linier correlation with speed and foot length has a negative insignificant linier correlation with speed, leg length has positive insignificant linier correlation with speed of state level sprinters.
